Gold Coast

A city of towering skyscrapers, sandy beaches, and tree-lined streets, Gold Coast has an unpretentious air complemented by a citywide focus on sports and the arts.
Visiting Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary and Surfers Paradise Beach will get you outdoors. Kids will appreciate attractions like Sea World Theme Park and Warner Bros. Movie World. Change things up with a short trip to Moffat Beach in Caloundra (about 1h 35 min away). There's lots more to do: learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary, play a few rounds at Surfers Paradise Golf Club, stroll through Burleigh Heads Beach, and get in on the family fun at Infinity Attraction.

Plan my trip to Gold Coast with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia to Gold Coast is an approximately 12-hour flight. You can also do a combination of flight and train. The time zone changes from Malaysia Time (MYT) to Australian Eastern Standard Time (Queensland) (AEST), which is usually a 2 hour difference. Traveling from Kuala Lumpur in May, expect nights in Gold Coast to be much colder, around 15°C, while days are little chillier, around 27°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 30th (Thu) early enough to travel to Sydney.

Lent iconic status as a result of its famous bridge and opera house, Sydney has a down-to-earth charm that enhances its spectacular setting and functional efficiency.
Kids will enjoy Bondi Beach and Sea Life Sydney Aquarium. Get outdoors at Manly Beach and The Opera House to the Botanic Gardens Walk. There's still lots to do: catch a live performance at Sydney Opera House, take in the views from Sydney Harbour Bridge, see the sky in a new way at Sydney Observatory, and take a stroll through The Rocks.

Plan a trip to Sydney easily and quickly by telling Inspirock to suggest an itinerary.

Traveling by flight from Gold Coast to Sydney takes 3.5 hours. Alternatively, you can do a combination of train and flight; or drive. In May, daytime highs in Sydney are 24°C, while nighttime lows are 14°C. You will have some time to spend on the 2nd (Sun) before leaving for home.
